Mahabharata (582), published in the year 1971 as a part of the Amar Chitra Katha series, is a book that is based on the mythological Indian story. This epic was originally narrated in Sanskrit by an ancient Indian sage called Vyasa, and is considered to be the longest epic in Sanskrit. The Mahabharata is divided into 18 distinct parts or parvas. The main story is about a kingdom called Bharata, which is ruled by the Kuru dynasty. Hastinapura is the capital of the kingdom and a major part of the story unfolds there. The story depicts the struggle for power between the two main family branches of the Kuru clan, the Kauravas and the Pandavas. The five Pandava princes and hundred Kaurava princes meet at Kurukshetra for a decisive battle to win the throne of Hastinapura, after the efforts to bring the two families together fail. The story introduces readers to a number of interesting characters, including Arjuna, the famous archer, Duryodhana, a Kaurava prince, Krishna, a human incarnation of Lord Vishnu, and Karna, a righteous and loyal warrior. Different twists in the sub-stories that are a part of this book make it an interesting read. B. R.
